A bit of a drizzly weekend but hey, it's holiday time!Went out to eat delicious Sichuan food with old friends of ours from Cornwall (Canada, that is), Andy and David. They saw me grow up, i was their witness at their wedding at age 10, i remember tobogganing down the big hill behind their flat onto the frozen St. Lawrence River...
They haven't changed much although i apparently have lost my "Bonnie baby fat", thank God.Played some intense beach Ultimate Frisbee yesterday here at DB. Only a few showed up due to the weather but it was great nonetheless.
It's the year of the dog and apparently a lot of people are going out to buy themselves a cute little puppy, only to be left on the street a few months down the road when their owners realize that the cute button-nose dog they thought was adorable 6 months ago has grown too big for the confines of a small HK apartment.Upon being abandoned on the street, if, after a short unforgiving 48 hours, the owner hasn't claimed the dog back, it is put down by the pound. Can't wait to see what happens when the year of the pig rolls around, or snake for that matter.
Going to meet with my Grandma's sister in Tuen Mun for lunch. It'll be great to see her, have been meaning to visit ever since i got here. She lives alone in her flat on the 6th floor with no elevators, she claims this keeps her fit and young.Tonight we will be meeting with 2nd cousins of mine, Max and Stephen, for dinner and then going to see the New Year's Parade downtown. Hoping the rain will hold up for that.
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR TO ALL! bow-wow
